My father-in-law was Michael Cropley. He died February 2005. Since I do a lot of research, I sent away, and received, quite a few pages of information from Nat'l Archives (I think). Anyway, I was wondering if anyone remembered him and what he was like as a young man. He enlisted 4/11/1944.
He served on SS Esso Buffalo (6/25/1944-3/7/45)
USS Albermarle (3/10/45-3/17/45)
SS Alexander Martin (4/23/45 - 10/11/45)
USS General CG Morton (10/17/45 - 11/05/45)
USS General CG Morton 12/26/45; 2/26/46; 4/46; 5/15/46;
He operated a 20 millimeter gun pointer.
Thanking you in advance for any information you might have about him.
And thank you all for being there for me, even if I wasn't born, but you protected my future.
